Background

The eruptions forming the maars produced basaltic-trachyandesite pyroclastic deposits containing granitic xenoliths.
The maars lie along a transverse lineament; the alkali basaltic cone of Chiar Kkollu is located nearby where this lineament intersects the regional trend. (Source: Smithsonian / GVP)
